Raquel Richardson, Founder & Principal
"What would you do if you knew you wouldn't fail?" a friend asked Raquel at the turn of 2000. In March of the same year, she launched Silver Square. Raquel is always making connections and linking big ideas, two habits she gladly practices for clients. Always up for a laugh and a brainstorm, Raquel brings energy and focus to our strategic and creative world. If you can catch her, ask her about her latest big idea: Guide Foundry, set to launch in 2012.
Casey Kenley, Communications Director
A former journalist, Casey preaches that every person and business has a story to tell. It's a story that, if interpreted well, can engage people and compel them to take action or form an opinion. Getting to that authentic "once upon a time" is a matter of questions and answers. Casey asks, clients answer and the story takes shape. At Silver Square, we can count on her to quibble over punctuation and restaurant quality.
Dean Verleger, Lead Programmer
Dean balances a passion for creation with an impulse for generalization — an impulse necessary for pragmatic programmers. Dean started exploring the art of coding and new media back in high school, where he crafted websites and campy text adventure games. A few of his aspirations include publishing his own games, growing lots of food and keeping bees. He's a regular techie naturalist, and we marvel at his usual tranquility.
Ann Ehinger, Account Coordinator
Ann is the link between clients and Squares. With a background in PR, editing and media, she enjoys getting inside the heads of different audience members, imagining a walk in their shoes. Ann believes that stories have the power to connect people to ideas they may have missed without the pull of an engaging narrative. Known for asking people, "What's your story?" she is sometimes accused of being nosey. Ann insists that it is all in the pursuit of a new perspective.
Matt Kiefer, New Media Manager
Give Matt a video camera and a couple hours and he won't let you down. Ever since he bought his first video camera at the age of 11, he has been creating stories that stick with the lucky folks who have seen them. Over the years, he has also discovered a passion for photography and design. Complementing his mad shooting skills are his fierce eating skills. Ask him about his fullness scale.
